According to a recent National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NACDA) finding, the average six-roomed house can collect up to 40 pounds of dust, dirt and allergens every year in its air ducts. Also, one ounce of dust can accommodate up to 40,000 dust mites. This means that duct work that is not cleaned regularly can be a haven for microbes. Common organisms founds in air ducts include molds, bacteria and fungi. In order to improve the quality of indoor air environment, you need to have air duct checked and cleaned periodically.
Miramar Duct Cleaning Services
Miramar Air Conditioning has experts who are knowledgeable in cleaning of air ducts and vents. When your air ducts remains unattended for a long time, dirt and debris builds up thereby restricting the free flow of air through your HVAC systems. This means that your units will have to work extra hard to achieve the same level of efficiency. This makes them costly to operate.
Our professionals do not limit their Air Duct cleaning only but rather extend to the entire ventilation system including the evaporator coil, HVAC unit and individual air ducts ranging from the vent covers to the main trunk line. We remove the vent covers, clean them thoroughly and return them back in place. In doing all this, we make use of state of art equipment that enables us to clean all the corners and bends in the duct work.
The Risk of Allergens and Asthma
Dust accumulated in air ducts can be blown away by the power of ac fans. This dust forms the primary food source for dust mites which in turn cause allergic reactions through their waste.
Common allergic reactions that affect people both young and old living in dust polluted indoor environments include respiratory tract and skin reactions. Some people also suffer from what is scientifically known as Hypersensitivity Pneumonitis. This is a severe allergic reaction to the lungs. Asthma which is one of the common allergic reactions is closely associated with dust and polluted air. To save your family from such respiratory illnesses, you need to take care of your entire ventilation system and if possible have it checked by HVAC professionals.
